PhD Scholarships at the Gran Sasso Science Institute

The Gran Sasso Science Institute is a new international PhD school and a centre for advanced studies in physics, mathematics, computer science and social sciences. It is located in L'Aquila (Abruzzo, Italy) and enrolled its first bunch of PhD students this autumn. The first group of PhD students includes eight students in computer science and eight in mathematics. The institute has just advertised ten PhD fellowships, which might be of interest to your students or you. Please advertise them as you see fit.

The institute's organization mirrors the one of other international PhD schools in Italy and has strong ties with IMT Lucca. In particular, PhD students at GSSI receive a PhD stipend, free lodging and food vouchers and pay no tuition fees.

I arrived here on Thursday night to deliver a course. My first impression is positive: the staff at the institute are friendly and ready to assist guest professors and students, and the facilities seem good. I will try to write more on GSSI at a later time.

As an expat from Abruzzo myself (albeit from Pescara, a rival city of L'Aquila since it became the prominent centre in the region), I am happy to give my tiny contribution to the development of the GSSI, which I hope will become a permanent institute after the ministerial evaluation in three years' time.
